„I took part in the B2 course and successfully passed the exam. In the beginning, I thought: Oh! This is difficult, B1 was way easier. But the lessons were very good, I learned a lot and our teacher motivated us. We also discussed and laughed a lot during the breaks. Now I'm thinking about whether I can obtain C1 as well.“ – Participant German for physicians, spring 2016
